Good news day.

I received some really fantastic news today.


I will give a very tiny bit of history to explain the story. For obvious reasons this is only a very condensed version of the story.


Last year we had the opportunity to have a little girl stay with us who was in foster care. She was a really sweet girl and she had been taken from a dreadful and horrible situation. She only stayed with us for a short while, we wanted to adopt her, but were told we would not be ideal because her family was from the area. 


I was frantic. So I contacted a friend that I knew wanted to adopt another little girl (she had already adopted a few children) and introduced them to this little girl. They fell in love with her instantly and today I just received news that the adoption has gone through and everything is now final. And the (selfish) best part is I will still get to see her from time to time.


What a good day!!


Unrelated - I have started painting again, I have not painted in years....I needed some art for 2 rooms in our house. The first was awful but it's bright, and that is what I needed. The next should be better. I will post the end results soon, maybe.


Today:


I am grateful I was blessed to be a small part of that little girls life. 


I am grateful for that good feeling inside letting me know someone in a higher power is happy with the small part I played in her life too.


I am grateful there are only 9 more days until my birthday!!! I am really excited to turn 32.


I am grateful for dear friends that make me laugh.


I am grateful the being grateful thing is catching on.
